The Honorable Shirley Chisholm 




Widely known as the first African 
American woman to seek a major political 
party nomination as President of the United 
States, Shirley Chisholm began her political 
career at the lowest rung of the ladder. It 
was in Brooklyn's "boss-run Democratic 
clubhouses," as she described it, that she 
began establishing her reputation as a 
questioner of inequities and as a self- 
described trouble-making maverick — but 
one to be reckoned with. 

Born in New York, Chisholm grew up 
in Brooklyn where her Barbadian parents 
survived depression and poverty to give 
their children college educations. It was during these formative years that her 
racial awareness grew into a resolve to do something meaningful for the black 
community. 

She began her career in politics in the early 1950's, rising, by strength of will 
and unswerving belief in purpose, from local clubhouse worker to New York State 
Assemblywoman to the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1972, Congresswoman 
Shirley Chisholm made history by seriously campaigning for the Democratic 
party nomination for U.S. President, the first woman of her race to do so. 

In February 1982, Rep. Chisholm announced her decision not to seek re- 
election to Congress, citing a longstanding intention not to remain in politics 
throughout her productive and creative life. Instead, by writing, teaching, 
lecturing and traveling, she hopes to create "a new national state of mind that 
demands peace, prosperity, and equality for all Americans." She cunently holds 
the Purington Chair at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts and lives part 
of the year in Palm Coast, Florida. 

She is the author of two books: UNBOUGHT AND UNBOSSED, her 
autobiography; and THE GOOD FlGHT, the story of her 1972 bid for the 
presidency. She holds a bachelor of arts degree from Brooklyn College, and 
received the master of arts degree and a professional diploma in educational 
supervision from Columbia University. She has received honorary doctorates 
from 3 1 institutions.
